Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Have you seen recent Fillmore 1969 prices???

In the past few weeks, prices on ebay for the 10CD box with the bonus CD have shot up from $350-450 to $840-1300. And some of those are unsealed.

Any idea what might have driven the sudden price increase?

If I had more time on my hands, I'd be seriously tempted to burn copies of all 11 discs and sell the originals. Or will prices climb even higher? $80-100 per CD seems nuts to me. And $10 per CD for Winterland 1973's looking like more of a bargain.

I saw them. I have wanted to hear the music to hear what all the fuss is in running the price up on the boxset. I own quite a few releases from the band, and find it amusing that someone is willing to pay so much for the boxset. Ever hear of tulip mania anyone? Anybody here care to contribute to the similar fate that happened to the Dutch folks who bought a tulip for equivalent of $10,000 each (snicker, snicker).

who was it that coined the phrase "a fool and his money are soon parted"? Just wait for the reissue.

Yeah, I waited like 25 years to get a copy of my first Dead show. No problem waiting for the re-issue. I wonder if they will release each show of the run separately in a CD set with some filler from later on in the 1969.

I'd suggest you all sell your copies on Ebay as time permits by the way. If prices keep going like they have, counterfeiters will start up the presses and flood the market with $100 boxset knock-offs. I see this happen with markets in general. Now, if some one could just send me a copy of the 10 CD boxset.....lol.

You could own this anytime you'd like, without laying out a single dime, not even for postage or blanks. Every glorious note from all eleven discs, free to you, right now!

Just do a little due diligence before complaining!

Here is a little hint: Listen to the sound advise of Capt. Willard and "never get out of the boat"

That's how I did it - but don't tell.

Send check or money order. Happy to do it. They will be "sealed" so be sure it is near the top end.

$1.4 k should do it.

Will include a special "William Tell's Artwork rendition of Rob and Ashes "battle of the lyrics" cartoon. A sure fire collector's item on par with my Winterland 73 pin.

If I only had an extra few grand to spend on CDs I would buy it. Not like the US dollar is worth all that much if you see what is being charged for anything over the counter lately. To change the subject a little, I wonder if folks will cut back spending big time on things and we see some bad economic numbers next quarter. Seems like there are so many things going on in the last days of the Bush presidency that a confirmation of a slowing economy is anti-climatic.

Now that you mention the economic factors, I wonder whether the promised tax rebates are making people more willing to part with their hard-earned money.

Only 10,000 copies of that Fillmore West 69 boxset were made. Not likely to be any more unless Rhino gets tired of this EBAY racket. All you guys can do is ask for more at a fair price. In the meantime, burn copies to use and put your originals away. Mine have only been played once...

I'm 1.

I kept the return label so I could share something similar musically (non-dead), then my pc stopped reading and writing rw discs.
I finally placed an order 3 days ago for an internal replacement, a good deal saving me $30+.

I'll send some '69 gems asap.

That's insane. I guess I should burn backup copies of my discs, just in case.

Heck, the boxset is more expensive than an ounce of gold now. Unlike gold, the market for the boxset is not global. I know it is breaking the rules, but once this thing has gotten out of print and trades for so much money, does the band or Rhino care if people burn copies of it and trade them for other shows? I'd love to get a copy of the 10 CD boxset but it looks like the music has gone to another type of fan now.

I support the commercial efforts of GDP, but I personally don't see anything wrong with trading CDs that we've been assured won't be reissued.

There is a 10disk cd of Fillmore for sale by dead.net or what?
